I have...

    Should I consider doing a SMP or Post Bacc???

    So I am currently in my junior year of undergrad and have come to the realization that my GPA probably won't be very competitive when I graduate (3.25 cgpa and 3.0 sgpa), particularly for MD schools. I'm not biased towards MD or DO and plan to apply to schools that fall under both categories. I...
